    24" Imac
    Apartment wireless issue.
    Ok I have two questions actually.

    1- I have a 24" Imac and we just got cable internet in our apartment. My gf has a 1.5 year old toshiba laptop and we were both "borrowing" wireless successfully. Now that I am plugged into the internet I want to get her onto my signal....how?

    2-I can't figure out how to set my signal to wireless, but with security, like a password. Do I need to get a wireless router?

    Thanks.
    Rob.

    In order to have more than one machine share a single Internet connection, you will need a router of some sort. I would suggest getting a wireless router since you guys are used to getting wireless Internet.

    Check out models by Linksys, D-Link, Belkin, and Apple.

    i just got the linksys WRT54G wireless router today for my apartment. too about 30 mins to set up and works great. the setup disc they give you makes installation a breeze and youre easily able to change your wireless settings. i would recommend it.
